    what do you remember about the 70's?

    come on, lets test our memories. I'm a child of the late 70's and early 80's so I remember things like
    Saturday Night Fever- I was a big Travolta fan and a huge Bee Gees fan

    Grease- that was actually the first movie I ever saw in a theater

    Star Wars- still a huge sc-fi fan

    Smokey and the Bandit- still watch it now when it comes on cable

    On TV it was the six million dollar man & the bionic woman, huge fan of wonderwoman,the hardy boys-big shaun cassidy fan, welcome back kotter, one day at a time, good times, the jeffersons, spent a lot of time watching reruns of the original stat trek.

    My parents listened to a lot of country music so I kinda liked all those CB songs

    Re: what do you remember about the 70's?

    I remember marching in a parade in Concord Mass on the 4th of July 1976
    I also remember Jim Morrison getting arrested for indecent exposure but that was the 60's
    I remember the announcement of the end of the Vietnam war
    I also remember all the ear-aches I would get during the disco era
    I remember making a UFO with candles straws and plastic bags ( I never did figure out how they knew it was me!)
    I do not remember 1978 though ..........

    Yeah I remember 1976, our church had one Sunday where we got dressed up in old-fashioned clothes to celebrate the bicentennial ,that was fun I remember my dad collecting the quarters and silver dollars.

    I remember when Elvis died-I was a big fan of his as well

    I don't remember much about the war, I must have been to young

    Re: what do you remember about the 70's?

    I was in elementary school in 1976 and remember wearing the bi-centenial clothing to celebrate the anniversary of our independence as a nation...didn't understand it then, just thought it was fun to dress up all fancy like....

    I remember "Con-voy" and I had a hand held cb radio....I was TOO cool

    I loved going to see grease in the theatre....and still love to watch it 'till this day!

    I remember having the funky flowery pants that I probably would laugh if someone suggested that I wear them now-adays!

    I remember star wars and dressing up like Princess Leah(spelling--sorry, not a big sci-fi chick)

    I remember jaws and there was a song that was a parady about it, would love to find that to play it for my kids

    I remember John Travolta in Saturday night fever and my mom going bonkers... along with Chris Christopherson, she loved the movie "a star is born"

    I remember watching the "Sonny and Cher" show, Carol Burnett (one of my all time faves!) and I LOVED Donny Osmond....saw him in concert TWICE!!!

    I remember feeling safe going down the street to my friends house, I don't remember my mom ever telling me not to talk to strangers....we lived in a small community and everyone knew us for the most part....it was a nice place to grow up in!

    I'm like you, I'll still watch grease now when it comes on too.

    Oh, I forgot about all of them! I LOVED watching Sonny and Cher, Carol burnett and Donnie and Marie-I had a crush on Donny too. There was another one that my parents had to watch every week too-Hee Haw I didn't realize how corny it was at the time.

    I lived (still live) on a tobacco farm, we had no neighbors in sight of us. It was completely free I could run around outside and play and not worry about anything (except snakes). It's a wonderful place to live although it's changed some now, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

    All in the Family, Mary Tyler Moore and Bob Newhart Shows - used to be really good line up for TV on Saturday night. Lava Lights, when Nixon got impeached and Johnson died and Jimmy Carter. It seemed that it was safe to go out of the house after dark, and it was just an easer time to live in the world.
